WELD COUNTY: BEST PLACE FOR FARMING AND RANCHING

Weld County has everything you could ask for in a tranquil, family-friendly community, away from the buzz and noise of the city. Colorado’s third largest county covers 3,987 square miles and is home to 31 cities and towns featuring acres of premier agricultural land. The gentle climate and a growing season of approximately 138 days make this area one of the best places in the state for farming and ranching.

The county is the leading producer of sugar beets, grains, and cattle in Colorado, and is also a major source of dairy products, dry beans, potatoes, and other produce. In addition to agriculture, oil and gas are also major industries here, along with agritourism. Food and energy companies are among the biggest employers and small businesses abound.

Education is a priority in Weld County. The University of Northern Colorado is found in the city of Greeley, creating yet another facet for the county as a lively college town. The Aims Community College offers more options for post-secondary education. There are 12 school districts that include some of the top-rated schools in Colorado and the county has its own scholarship program.

The Cache la Poudre River and the South Platte Rivers, along with the nearby Rocky Mountains, provide residents and guests with numerous opportunities for outdoor recreation, as well as some of the most picturesque natural views in the United States.
